WINTER WEATHER MOVING IN

 

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Illinois State Police (ISP) are urging you to start preparing now for upcoming winter driving conditions. IDOT crews and the Illinois Sate Police are making final preparations to get the state's winter teams and equipment ready for the upcoming snow and ice season. Winter weather conditions can change rapidly and make for hazardous driving. Here are some Winter weather driving safety tips. If your trip is not necessary, stay at home. Do not get too close to snow plows. Be wary of black ice, roads that appear clear may have a thin layer of ice. Keep your gas tank at least 2/3rds full, dress warmly, inform someone of where you are going, carry an emergency car kit, a cell phone and always wear your seatbelt. IDOT will have more that 3,900 employees and over 1,900 pieces of equipment available this winter to help insure that roads remain clear and passable.

The Bond County Health Department Board met this week. Bond County Senior Center has been offered the opportunity to lease a portion of the land where the new Health Department will be built.  The Senior Center will bring this matter up at their next board meeting. In other new business, the board approved a three-percent pay raise for Health Department employees, effective December 1st.  Employee Christmas gifts, were discussed and approved.

 

On the building construction progress, Korte Construction and the Health Board are waiting for certificates to be processed with Ellinger Construction. Once certificates and licenses are processed, construction could be started as soon as next week.

 

The selection of officers was on the agenda.  A motion was approved for the current officers to stay the same for next year.

 

Maxine Barth reported on the flu shots status.  The Health Department has given 1400 flu shots with 300 shots left.
